Poster Session Focuses on IRE Research

Jul 11, 2005

Participants of the Institute for Regional Excellence 2005 cohort wrapped up months of research and presented findings on various topics to COG's Chief Administrative Officers Committee in July. During a special poster session, IRE students presented the results of months-long research on numerous issues affecting the region.

The presentations involved group projects that were part of the 12-month IRE program. Research topics included improving the region's environmental report card, lowering obesity rates by making communities more pedestrian-friendly, and improving retention rates among foster parents.
